Velvet is one of spring’s most sough-after fabrics, no longer reserved only for fancy affairs and holiday dressing. Here, Fashion Fabric Club’s roundup of 5 simple-yet-impactful velvet pieces that you can wear right now, and straight through to summer.

Velvet Button UpButton Up

The button up is a wardrobe essential—it’s a timeless basic that works both off duty and on; whether the office dress code is business casual or just plain old casual. In velvet, the button up has an almost chameleon-like way to go dressy or super laid-back, depending on the pairing.

Velvet tee3/4 Length Tee

A classic crew neck T is a part of arsenals of nearly everyone, from clotheshorses to the sartorially stunted, but in a plush, shiny velvet it gets a totally new look; even being able to go to more formal affairs with the right accessories.

Velvet Bomber JacketLong Bomber Jacket

Velvet is the just-right weight for in-between weather, perfect for a long bomber: it can be worn as a light jacket on warmer days, or as added layer when the temperatures are low. Added bonus: it’s an easy, no-brainer way to transform a go-to look of jeans and a T into a full-on look.

Velvet BlazerOversized Blazer

The “borrowed-from-the-boys” moment is still going strong, so mixing in the velvet trend is an obvious (and incredibly right-now) choice. To play up the menswear vibe, try a solid velvet in a muted or neutral color like this rust brown.

Velvet Raglan TRaglan T

If you’re looking to just dip into the velvet trend, rather than diving all the way in, you can use velvet as an accent material on traditional pieces (take this raglan T, for example)—it’s an easy way to upgrade tried-and-true favorites while also rocking the hot trend.
